Five Years Of Blogging!

Back in 2012, I decided to start a blog for something to do while I was briefly unemployed. I never guessed that I would stick at it for this long! As a fan of blogs, I wanted to have a go myself, writing about baking, music, vintage and decorating our house. I also wanted to improve my…

The Understatement Of The Year

Babies are so bad for the environment and that’s my understatement of the year! Sod using public transport, not owning a car, recycling, buying secondhand, growing your own, eating less meat, being vegetarian/vegan or cleaning your house without chemicals.

The Parma Violets

Here is little up date on our lounge decorating situation.

Lights Alive

Who else remembers the toy Lights Alive from the eighties? I wanted one so bad when I was a kid! Anyway, this is another one of my random-musings-type post. I mean with that intro, I might as well start as I mean to go on, eh! I was thinking about our new house, the decorating and…
